What is pediatrics?
Pediatrics is the field of medicine that addresses infant, childhood, and adolescent medical needs. Kids are at risk of conditions that don’t affect adults. Other conditions affect both children and adults but occur at higher rates in kids.
When the team at Valencia Medical Center evaluates and treats children, they keep healthy standards for growth and development in mind.
Children of all ages can receive pediatric care at Valencia Medical Center. The providers are kid-friendly and can make small children feel comfortable in the office.
The team also answers questions from both parents and children and teaches kids basic knowledge about health and wellness.
Which services are a part of pediatrics?
Pediatrics tailors multiple services to the needs of infants, children, and adolescents. In the office at Valencia Medical Center, your child can get:
Pediatric physicals help you keep track of your children’s growth and development. During these visits, the team evaluates your child’s wellness and behavior. They can identify any physical, emotional, or behavioral concerns that might need to be addressed.
Sick visits are appointments you attend at Valencia Medical Center when your child exhibits new symptoms or health concerns that seem to be worsening. The team performs a full evaluation of your child and can treat them with prescriptions, home care advice, and sometimes in-office treatments.
Vaccinations, a part of preventive care, are injections that prevent specific infections by teaching the immune system how to fight them. There are immunizations available for viral and bacterial diseases like polio, chickenpox, the flu, and hepatitis.
Which conditions can pediatrics treat?
The team at Valencia Medical Center can evaluate and treat your child for many common diseases and disorders that appear in childhood. They can also provide care for minor playground injuries that happen from time to time but don’t require trips to the emergency room.
You can bring your child in for a visit if they have symptoms of:
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Cold and flu
- Strep throat
- Ear infections
- Stomach flu
- Cuts and laceration
These are far from the only illnesses and injuries children get, but they’re some of the most common. The team performs a diagnostic physical before recommending any other tests for a diagnosis, such as blood tests, X-rays, or urinalysis.
